Black Horse Inn

Welcome to the Black Horse Inn

The Black Horse Inn is a traditional family run Inn situated in the village of Swaffham Bulbeck close to the historical city of Cambridge and the home of horse racing, Newmarket.
Swaffham Bulbeck derived the main element of its name from 'home of the Swaefe' and its modern byname, in use since the 1220s, from the Bolbecs who were 12th-century manorial lords.
The Black Horse was originally known as the Horse and Groom which was established in 1765 with the name being changed in 1870. Swaffham Bulbeck once had six public houses, the Black Horse Inn is now the only one remaining.
We pride ourselves on using the very best ingredients possible and source as much as possible form local suppliers and farmers.
We aim to serve great pub classics, done well along with our daily specials.
With six hand pumps there is a always a real ale to suit! Always on is the ever consistent Eagle IPA from Charles Wells and Courage Directors. We are fortunate to be able to source many specials and guest ales from a wide variety of breweries from around the country.
Our wine list is matched too many of our dishes on the menus and we think that there is something for everyone.
 We have seven guest rooms which provide our guests an ideal base. We attract visitors from many areas whether for business use, horse racing at Newmarket or visiting the delightful colleges and buildings of Cambridge. All our rooms are ensuite and have everything needed for a short stay and there is free WI-FI in all the premises.
